Some Friday MLB Helpful Information

Friday's Streaking & Slumping Starting Pitchers

Here are Two Streaking & Two Slumping Pitchers Probable to Take the Hill Friday.


Hisashi Iwakuma, Seattle Mariners (3-1, 1.61 ERA)

Iwakuma held the Blue Jays to just one run over seven innings last time out. The righty has an impressive 42:8 K:BB ratio and is settling into the No 2 starter role behind Felix Hernandez. Iwakuma will take the hill against Oakland for the second time this season Friday. He held the A’s to just one run in six innings of work earlier in April.

Phil Hughes, New York Yankees (1-3, 3.60 ERA)

Hughes has allowed two earned runs or less in each of his last four outings after a rocky start to the 2013 campaign. The righty has sat down a total of 30 batters over his last four trips to the hill and is coming off an eight-inning gem against the A's.


Ian Kennedy, Arizona Diamondbacks (1-3, 5.19 ERA)

The Diamondbacks’ ace has struggled early in 2013 and has been touched up for nine runs over his past two starts. The righty hasn’t notched a win since Opening Day over the St. Louis Cardinals but has an impressive 2.42 career ERA vs. the Phillies.

Shaun Marcum, New York Mets (0-2, 7.20 ERA)

Marcum has made two starts and one relief appearance since coming off the DL April 27th, and hasn’t looked sharp in any of them. The right-hander hasn’t pitched more than 4 1/3 innings in any of his outings this season and is working on expanding his current 90-pitch count.

Free MLB Baseball Prediction From Robert Ferringo:
Take Chicago White Sox over L.A. Angels (7 p.m., Friday, May 10)
Here we just have two bad teams, playing bad baseball, facing off in an under-the-radar game. But I like the home team here because, at the very least, they have a hot pitcher on the mound. Dylan Axelrod has notched four straight quality starts, giving up just eight runs in the 26 innings. The White Sox have lost three of those four starts, but that hasn't been his fault. The Angels are going with Tommy Hanson, who has been decent in adjusting to the American League. But Hanson's problem is that he isn't going deep into games. He hasn't gone past the sixth in any of his five starts. That is going to give Chicago a crack at Los Angeles' terrible bullpen. He can be victimized by the home run ball against a Chicago lineup that swings for the fences. The White Sox are a pretty good home team. But they have played 19 of their last 27 games on the road, which has kind of muted their value. I think Chicago will play ! with a little urgency this weekend as they are already sagging in the Central standings. I'll go with the sharper pitcher and the motivated home team as the White Sox will steal this game with some late runs.

On Friday the free MLB Totals System Play is on the Under in the Oakland at Seattle game. Rotation numbers 977/978 at 10:10 eastern. This game fits a system that has won every time since 2009 and plays to the under for home favorites like the Mariners, that are off a road favored loss and scored 2 or less runs, vs an opponent off a road favored loss that also scored 2 or less runs. Seattle as a team has played under 9 straight times in a game where they scored 2 or less runs and had 3 or less hits. Oakland after a hot start with the bat has gone cold scoring just 2.7 runs on .220 hitting the past week. They do have a solid road bullpen era at 2.66 and a serviceable D. Straily on the mound. Seattle has Iwakuma and he has pitched under in all 3 home starts with a 0.48 era here. The Mariners have stayed under in 6 of 8 at home when the total is 7 or less and are scoring just 3 runs per game vs right handed pitchers. Take the under here.

Jim Feist's FREE MLB Play for Friday, May 10, 2013



Last place Toronto stumbled into Fenway Park with a weak offense, 18th in baseball in runs scored, 25th in on-base percentage. Boston is a team with a weak bottom part of the order. Boston also has ace lefty Jon Lester on the hill with a 4-0 record and a 3.30 ERA, fanning 40 in 43+ innings. The under is 7-3-1 in the Red Sox's last 11 home games vs. a team with a losing road record and 7-1 under the total in Lester's last 8 home starts. Play the Blue Jays/Red Sox under the total.
